Philadelphia — By the morning of the third day of the WOW/WOC 2015 gathering in Philadelphia, some 500 delegates had participated in workshops, listened to speakers in full assemblies, dined and wined together, plotted and planned, and had shared prayers and liturgies. They came ready for one more grand celebration. By all appearances, that's what they got.

Leaving the gathering many said they were renewed in energy and commitment. For participants It would be a memorable assembly.

 The video below gives a bit of the flavor of the morning gathering.
